Is “Andy” McCabe Going Down?

by Daveda Gruber:

The Justice department has allegedly rejected a desperate appeal from former deputy and acting director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe.

Allegedly, it has been recommended by U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu that McCabe appealed the decision of the U.S. attorney for Washington all the way up to Jeffrey Rosen who is the deputy attorney general.

Potential charges of the former top FBI official relate to DOJ inspector general findings against him regarding misleading statements concerning a Hillary Clinton-related investigation.

McCabe’s legal team has said that they received an email from the Department of Justice which said, “The Department rejected your appeal of the United States Attorney’s Office’s decision in this matter. Any further inquiries should be directed to the United States Attorney’s Office.”

McCabe was recently hired by CNN as a commentator and paid for his service. He had previously spent twenty-one years working for the FBI.

McCabe became the acting FBI director in May 2017 after President Trump fired former FBI director James Comey.

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe in March 2018. The IG had found McCabe had repeatedly misstated his involvement in a leak to The Wall Street Journal. This was in regard to an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

McCabe sued the FBI and the Justice Department over being fired. He argued it was part of Trump’s plan to rid the bureau of leaders he perceived as disloyal to him.

McCabe argued in his complaint that FBI Director Chris Wray and Sessions, the two officials responsible for demoting and then firing him, created an excuse to force him out, which was in agreement with the president’s wishes.

The reason given for McCabe’s being fired was that he had misled investigators over his involvement in a news media leak.

McCabe has denied any wrongdoing and says that the real reason for his firing was “his refusal to pledge allegiance to a single man.”

I’ve told people on Twitter, who have asked me, who I thought would be indicted. I’ve always answered, “Andy.”

Come on folks, someone big had to go down, right? McCabe is a big fish to fry but others may get a free pass.

Would You Pay to See Them?

by Daveda Gruber:

Bill and Hillary Clinton are still relevant to some of the American people but apparently people don’t want to spend a whole lot of money to see the couple speak on their political views.

The Clintons are on a speaking tour of thirteen cities but they don’t seem to be drawing in crowds who want to spend big bucks to see the couple.

When the tour was announced in November, the best tickets were going for the hefty price of $1,785, which was a far cry from the 54% drop in price of $829.

On Friday the cheaper seats could be had for as little as $20 at Seattle’s WaMu Theater where the Clintons were speaking.

Organizers had to slash listed prices and even offer discounts through Groupon to boost sales. The Seattle Times reported that the official prices for the former first couple’s appearance ranged from $66.50 to $519.

The performance by the Clintons lasted about ninety minutes and was presented as an interview of Hillary and Bill by actor Bradley Whitford.

The former First Lady and former Secretary of State said, “I really believe that we are in a crisis, a constitutional crisis. This is a test for our country.”

She also said to  the crowd in Seattle that Barr “would rather be the president’s defense lawyer than the chief law enforcement officer of our country.”

She wasn’t done yet. Hillary continued by saying that the Mueller’s report “not only decisively proves, but goes chapter and verse about how the Russians — in the words of the report ˗˗ conducted ‘a sweeping and systemic interference in our election.”

She topped that up with a dig at President Trump by saying, “And then you wake up and your president is spending an hour on the phone with Vladimir Putin, who was the mastermind of the interference and attack on our election.”

In my humble opinion, the tickets could have been free and I don’t believe that many people would have gone to sit through what the Clintons have to say about anything.

I venture to say that the only way to get a large crowd to view the couple would have to guarantee that at least Hillary would be carried away in chains and shackles at the end of the performance. Now, that would call for a standing ovation.

Why Hillary Clinton Was Not Locked Up

by Daveda Gruber:

Whatever happened to locking up Hillary Clinton? We were waiting  patiently to see justice served and that day has not come. The FBI never gave Conservatives reason to feel that the guilty, no matter how far up the political chain, would be punished for the crimes they allegedly committed.

It appears that someone thought there was wrong doing. The FBI’s top lawyer in 2016 under ex-Director James Comey the FBI’s top lawyer thought that Hillary Clinton and her team should have immediately realized that they were mishandling “highly classified” information based on the obviously sensitive nature of the emails’ contents sent through Hillary’s private server.

According to a transcript of his closed-door testimony before congressional committees last October, former FBI general counsel James Baker believed she should have been prosecuted until “pretty late” in the investigation.

Baker said high-level officials at the bureau were “arguing about” whether to bring charges against Clinton. He originally thought that Clinton’s behavior was “alarming” and “appalling.”

Baker said, “So, I had that belief initially after reviewing, you know, a large binder of her emails that had classified information in them. And I discussed it internally with a number of different folks, and eventually became persuaded that charging her was not appropriate because we could not establish beyond a reasonable doubt that…we, the government, could not establish beyond a reasonable doubt that… she had the intent necessary to violate (the law).”

Baker told lawmakers that it was “the nature and scope of the classified information that, to me, initially, when I looked at it, I thought these folks should know that this stuff is classified, that it was alarming what they were talking about, especially some of the most highly classified stuff.”

Democrats clearly recall then candidate Donald Trump, while on the campaign trail, vowing to prosecute Mrs. Clinton if he won the election.

Brian Fallon, who was Mrs. Clinton’s campaign spokesman, said, “It was alarming enough to chant ‘lock her up’ at a campaign rally. It is another thing entirely to try to weaponize the Justice Department in order to actually carry it out.”

On the other hand, Conservatives said Mrs. Clinton should not be immune from scrutiny as a special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, investigates Russia’s interference in last year’s election and any connections to Mr. Trump’s campaign. They argued, for instance, that Mrs. Clinton was the one doing Russia’s bidding in the form of a uranium deal approved when she was Secretary of State.

A December letter by former House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy and former House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte said the decision not to prosecute Clinton was not unanimous.

Under questioning by Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, Baker spoke extensively about the back and forth arguments.

Here’s part of that discussion:

Ratcliffe: All right. Are you a reasonable prosecutor?

Baker: Not anymore. I’m not a prosecutor anymore. 

Then there is a quick exchange of questions and answers. Ratcliff pivots back to Baker’s decision to change his mind regarding Clinton.

Ratcliffe: You were persuaded, and stated as a basis, that ultimately you were persuaded there was a lack of evidence establishing knowledge or criminal intent, correct?

Baker: Yes.

Ratcliffe: When were you persuaded?

Baker: Sorry. Pretty late in the process, because we were arguing about it, I think, up until the end.

Ratcliffe: Yeah, So Jim Comey had reached the opposite conclusion as early as – or I guess as late as May the 2nd of 2017, as reflected in the memo that he created, correct?

Baker: I know there’s been a lot of public discussion about that – this way I experienced that interaction and other interactions with Jim Comey is he would throw things out like that to get people to start talking and thinking about it and test his conclusions against others and get them to push back. And so, it was – I believe it was in that process that I read these emails and we had these discussions and arguments.

Baker’s testimony was considered credible by those in the room.

In a televised interview on July 3, 2016, Clinton claimed that she had “never received nor sent any material that was marked classified” using her personal email system.

Later on she said she regretted using the setup after it emerged that her private servers contained classified materials from Special Access Programs, or SAP, which are considered some of the most closely held U.S. government secrets.

So, there you have it. Hillary was very close to being held accountable for her alleged negligent behavior. It appears that Comey’s influence stopped the investigation in its tracks.

Socrates was clear. Democracy ends in Tyranny

The job was titled Outdoor Wilderness Counselor.  As “basecamp” was located in the Northern tip of Idaho it was indeed outdoor and in the wilderness which was fine with me as I’d grown up in the mountains of Northern California.  For those of you who’ve read Late Bird you will recognize this setting and “uncomfortably” remember the usage of the “stump”.

I was tasked with teaching a workshop to a collection of the teenagers in camp.  Handed a small folder I perused the material I was to cover over the next hour.  The kids, glad to be out of the elements for a bit, gathered in the canvas covered area and although happy to not be sitting on stumps, were still not pleased with their current predicament.

None of them were there by choice.  In front of me sat a collection of teenagers that would laugh with scorn at today’s millennial.

They knew not micro in regards to aggression and in all reality only knew abuse.

Staring at me now with glazed eyes were the survivors of physical, sexual and emotional trauma.  Many had traded their bodies for drugs.  Some for security.  Others had used their fists, legs, teeth and fingernails to ensure their own survival.

I taught from the material for about ten minutes and then made an adjustment.  First, there was nothing in the material that was going to open their eyes and as entertaining as I am I couldn’t make that stuff work.

Second, I knew I had information that would interest them and provide them a porthole if they so chose to gather more information down the road.

I put the text down and asked a simple question.  “What is the most important thing to your survival?” Heads popped up.  Backs straightened.  The frozen glaze started to soften.

I asked again “What is the most important thing to your survival?”

Although I had their attention no one seemed to have an answer.

“Come on guys this isn’t a trick.  You are smart young men and women. Think about it.”

After a couple wisecracks of “beer” and “pot” the room sat quietly until a hand was raised.

I nodded. “Go ahead.”

“Love?” was the response in more of question than an answer.

If you care about people in general and specifically children it was a heartwarming and heartbreaking answer all rolled into one.

I nodded and said softly “Great answer but let me ask you this.  Have you had a lot of love in your life?”

“No,” came the answer.

“Are you feeling any love right now?” I inquired.

“No,” was the response.

“Are you still alive?”

“Yes.”

“Again great answer but really think about it.  If you haven’t had love in your life and you are still surviving then love isn’t the most important element to your survival.”

It became silent in the room again as they sat quietly, their minds working.  For thirty seconds all the pain, fear and frustration was gone as actual thinking took over.  Synapses were firing, blood was flowing.  The art of Thought was happening.

Of course the answer is water, and after given the answer, affirmative comments and head nods happened around the room as they immediately knew they were receiving facts.  (Do not send me emails about oxygen)

More importantly they were willing to accept facts and make adjustments to their views.  Abused, desperate children willing to look beyond their own situations and LEARN.

Something, according to the press, registered adult Democrats seem unable or unwilling to do.

I am willing to grant many Democrats do not understand nor can define Democracy.  What I find pathetic is the national media pushing the story line that “educated voters” are primarily Democrats and support Hillary Clinton.

No one who actually has an EDUCATION would ever support Democracy nor be willing to repeat the lie that the United States is one.  In fact by making these statements they are proving themselves to be decidedly uneducated.

Let me try and be concise.  We’ve all heard of Socrates and Plato although sadly too many are only familiar with Socrates because of Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, and as stated in the past, too many adults think Plato comes in a can.

Socrates was Plato’s teacher and is considered one of the original voices of western philosophy.

Through Plato’s writings the world was introduced to Aristocracy, which then becomes Timocracy, Oligarchy, Democracy, and finally Tyranny…in that order.

For the purpose of this column let us focus on the term Democracy and its inevitable arrival, BY DEFINITION, at Tyranny.

No Liberals.  Bernie Sanders and Dan Rather aren’t smarter than Socrates and Plato.  Bernie and Dan would struggle with Barney and Fred.

Of course I can hear Liberals heads exploding as they read this and start to bloviate a wide variety of nonsensical verbiage including the attacking of, wait for it, Socrates and or Plato.

People people!  It’s his/their theory that you have embraced.  They named it Democracy.  You call yourselves Democrats. It’s not their fault you didn’t finish the story.  The one that ends in Tyranny.

It’s not my fault you have chosen to brand yourselves with a mark of stupidity. Not only is no one forcing this upon you, I provide weekly columns on the depravity and disease known as the Democratic Party.

Sadly these “educated” souls, that the press keep mentioning, haven’t any actual education at all.

Politicians simply wash rinse and repeat jargon like Progressive, Liberal, or the new one, Democratic Socialism, and the “educated Democrats” slop it up like pigs at a trough.

Similar qualities can be found at any local sports bar where grown men, who don’t know anything about football, run around with Jerry Rice jerseys on their backs.

Fortunately through Plato’s writings the concept of a Republic was established.

Due to space and time constraints I will fast forward.

The construction of a Republic continued to grow as humans evolved and grasped the idea and possibility of Individual Freedom.

The historical arrival of Jesus furthered the concept of not only the Individual but of Individual Responsibility.

Centuries later Adam Smith used the term “the invisible hand” to explain how the individual was of greater benefit to society by striving to fulfill their own dreams or passions.

This proclamation was quickly followed by a band of “patriots” in the New World where individuals living in Thirteen Colonies decided their freedom was more important than anything else.

With a Declaration of Independence an historic war began that would forever shape the world.

As “Don’t Tread On Me” flags were flown, statements such as “Give me liberty or give me death” and “I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country” were made by individuals practicing their independent Free Will.  Through the sacrifice of life and limb the greatest beacon of Individual Freedom known as The United States was formed and thus created the need for a document.

A written document known as the United States Constitution.

Through debate, arguments specifically against Democracy and even insults, the culmination of millenniums of human behavior, specifically focused on Individual Freedom and Personal Responsibility, created the Constitutional Republic.

Democracy is about the majority over the minority which Socrates stated leads to Tyranny.

A Constitutional Republic guarantees the rights of the Individual protected by the Rule of Law.

A simple way to verify that Americans implicitly understand the difference (although many cannot explain or appreciate) is the usage of the word Rights.

No one ever states they have Democratic Rights.

It is always Constitutional Rights.

Furthermore for those who like to argue, Article 4, Section 4, requires each State to have a Republican form of government.

The word Democracy was purposely left out of the Constitution as many of the framers, including James Madison, argued vehemently against it.

This was an educated man.

For those who continue to wear the scarlet D one need not wonder anymore why the Donkey is their moniker.

Then again why disparage the donkeys.

Eeyore isn’t to blame.

Lack of an education is, or an even greater concern, lack of a soul.

WORDS ARE BETTER THAN FISTS

It was a Friday night (late 80’s) in Grass Valley, California.  I was a senior in high school and a friend of mine suggested we attend a party being thrown at a house where someone’s parents were out of town.  I wasn’t much of a “partier” as I didn’t drink alcohol or do drugs, but aside from school, the “parties” were where the girls could be found.

So to the party we went.

It was your typical soiree with too many teenagers doing too many stupid things like drinking beer and wine coolers.  Yes wine coolers were “all the rage” back then. My buddy and I weren’t there long, before another reason I didn’t crash too many parties, arrived.

Testosterone fueled males looking to impress the ladies.

Now for those of you who have read Late Bird you know fighting was part of my adolescence.  Sometimes it went my way. Sometimes it didn’t.  I learned very early that if someone was messing with you to hit first, hit hard.

I was also one that never held a grudge.

Once the fight was finished, as far as I was concerned, the problem was solved.

Sadly too many who get their egos crushed feel the need to “come back for more”.

I digress.

Because this story isn’t about this particular fight I am going to condense.  Someone I did not know had a problem with me. I addressed the problem in a way that was unsatisfactory to them.  My friend and I left the party.  Again as far as I was concerned the issue was over.

The next week in school the aggrieved individual and his friends offered to rearrange parts of my body and made comments in general that in this day and age would not be considered “micro aggressions”.

One of the aggrieved party’s friends was a big, strong,  blond, tough guy (we’ll call him Steve) that I didn’t know and had never had any problems with.

He stared at me as I squared off with two of them at a basketball game.  The conversation was brief.  A word that rhymed with buck and chuck attached to you was shared a few times back and forth.  Fortunately aside from profanity and threats nothing happened.

Two on one isn’t the best odds especially if you are the one.  Much more on this subject later.

You see sometimes life has an interesting way of making a nemesis a very real friend.

Let us fast forward about a year.  I’d just finished my first year of college baseball and was playing in an all-star game that encompassed the best players in our district and then traveled to Sacramento to play other all-star teams from different districts.

One thing about Grass Valley and the surrounding towns that made up our district.

The citizens supported their sports teams.

This all-star game happened in the middle of day and during the week, but the “mountain folk” as we were called, traveled well and were there to cheer us on.

This was the only game I can remember that my father didn’t attend.  He made all the others but couldn’t get this day off.  Looking back on it I believe this was divine intervention because had he been there I have no doubt, some of the fans of the other team, wouldn’t have made it home.

We were matched up that day with a district that was made up of what is today referred to as “urban”.

It was the “city” kids against the “mountain” kids and the stands were packed with adults cheering on each side.

I always thought the “euphemisms” were kind of funny.  We all knew “city” meant black and brown and “mountain” meant white and the stands were filled that way.

So were the teams.

Skin color never mattered to me in any way and athletics was no different.  Whether my opponents were black, white, brown or blue didn’t matter because I ALWAYS thought I was the best player on any diamond on which I stepped.

The better my opponents the harder I competed.  This happens when you HATE TO LOSE and are willing to dedicate yourself to something in pursuit of excellence.

Before the game even started, fans on both sides were yelling comments onto the field and eventually at each other.  The umpires were getting tense as the language was filled with profanity, primarily from the city crowd.

Someone on the city side brought a drum and they were beating the living tar out of it.

I have to admit, aside from the profanity and threats, I LOVED the environment.

You could smell the competition, right along with the newly cut grass and pine tar.

Wonderfully, in the middle of it all, was I.

Early in the game I drove a fastball over the left field fence and as I rounded the bases a wide variety of slurs were hurled at me.

If you can think it, it was said.

I actually started laughing coming around third and took my time in reaching home.  The fans were the worst.  Only one other time during the rest of my career did I ever experience anything close and that happened at Fresno State.

One of the more memorable lines from the probably drunken crowd at Bulldog University was from a young woman who screamed “you ain’t got nothing down there!” when I adjusted my cup in between pitches.

To be fair I may have slightly turned my hips and aimed my “adjustment” in their overall direction but after innings of listening to their opinions about my genetic makeup and sexual prowess/persuasion, I thought I’d give them a little “hat tip”.

Back to the story.

The next inning one of the “city” kid’s hit a towering home run to center field.  It might still be going.  Now remember I took my time rounding THIRD.  This joker still hadn’t hit first base and was one flap down Jeffrey Leonard style screaming at the top of his lungs “DING DONG! DING DONG!”

Jogging back to shortstop I started screaming at him to “shut the f*&k up!”

He passed within a few feet of me, and although I was boiling, I doubt he even heard me as the “DING DONG” kept getting louder.

The city fans were screaming their delight and the drum was being beaten…well like a drum.

The noise was incredible, the ranting, spitting, and screaming was at a peak (or so I thought) and again, aside from the threats, and the profanity (yes I realize I was part of the profanity problem) it was AWESOME!

Looking back on it the DING DONG wasn’t something I would have done but I have to admit I am smiling as I remember that moment.

Fast forward a couple of innings and things had gotten tight.

The score had gone back and forth but their pitcher was getting tired and my guess is they didn’t have anyone else they thought could get the job done.  He gave up the lead, became frustrated and drilled our next hitter.  It happens.  He started to throw a temper tantrum on the mound and drilled our next hitter which loaded the bases.  I was having quite a day and I guess their coach didn’t want to take a chance that he was about to witness a grand slam because he pulled his pitcher as I walked to the plate.

As the new pitcher warmed up, their center fielder jogged into the infield and stood around third base staring at me. I was standing on their side of the diamond watching their new pitcher warmup as I am right handed.  I’m not really sure what or why he decided to remind me of my skin color (not that that wasn’t happening all day) but he lit into every word imaginable including the one that rhymes with bigger.

I had my 34 31 Easton in my hands and with a head nod waved him in and said,”come on down.”  He did what most “tough guys” like to do and walked INTO his third basemen while pretending to be held back. When the pitcher was ready to go the center fielder stopped with his “hold me back” program and jogged to the mound, pointed at me and said something to the new pitcher.

Now remember.  This entire day was filled with threats, profanity and our last two hitters had just been beaned.

I glanced back at the home plate umpire and said,”blue, if this guy hits me we’re gonna have a problem.”

The old guy working the dish looked exhausted.  He’d had both sides screaming at him and had also received comments about his melanin level when calls didn’t go a certain way.  He didn’t even lift his mask.  He just looked at me and said, “son, you do what you gotta do.”

In all my experience in athletics I’d never had an official say anything like that and it has never happened since.

The poor old guy was through.  “Son you do what you gotta do.”

Now for a rule follower like myself this was a green light.

Of course even if he’d said nothing, if their pitcher drilled me, “we were gonna have a problem.”

As the pitcher went into his windup I braced for a fastball to be thrown at my head.   The pitch left his hand and bounced in front of the plate.

“Strange,” I thought as the catcher threw the ball back.

The pitcher toed the rubber and threw his second pitch.

Again, right in the dirt in front of home plate.

“That’s weird,” I thought.

Pitch number three same spot.

I stepped out of the batters box  and finally realized what was about to happen.

Pitch number four drilled me squarely in the back and he threw it as hard as he could.

For those of you who haven’t been smoked by a pitch it isn’t pleasant and when you know it is on purpose…well….

I took three steps towards first base and then took a hard left and sprinted to the mound.  The fight was on.

When you are first to a baseball brawl things usually don’t go very well.  I ended up on the bottom of the pile with my arms wrapped around the necks of two opposing players and yes I was squeezing with everything I had.

It didn’t take long though for all the oxygen to be gone and the panic to set in as I could feel myself being smothered.  Just as things were going dark multiple bodies were removed from my chest and both of my arms were ripped back freeing the others.

I inhaled deeply as I was lifted from the ground and then escorted to our dugout where I was informed I was being thrown out of the game.

The two players I’d had at the bottom of the pile were screaming and yelling that they were going to kill me.

This language earned their removal as well.

I was escorted off the field by District officials, and walked to the parking lot, by one of my teammate’s father and older brother.  Unfortunately this wasn’t a well laid plan as leaving wasn’t an option as we had to wait for my teammate, their son and brother.

We decided to return to the field.

That was a mistake.

The two other ejected players and their families had apparently been held back and when they saw little ol’ me…they lost their minds.

I was standing in my sliding shorts, socks, a shirt and had a necklace on.  As I looked up the stands emptied.

In my direction.

The father of my teammate grabbed my bat, jumped in front of me and then tackled the first attacker.

His son tackled the next one.

The rest was up to me.

I don’t know how many of you have ever experienced a mob of insanity running towards you screaming, that they are going to “kill you”, but I strongly suggest you try and not have this experience.

It isn’t pretty.

I was knocked down three times, had my shirt ripped off my body, necklace gone forever and had a massive goose egg on the back of my head where I think I was kicked while fighting on the ground.

I was told later that one of the mother’s was arrested for pulling a knife.

As I fought back the third time to my feet the punches and kicks had subsided.  Standing in front of me now were OUR fans.

This probably kept me from ending up in the hospital or worse.

As I stood there half naked, bleeding from the mouth, snarling unintelligible things, I noticed a big strong blond kid to my right pushing back two adult men whom were both bigger than he.

I heard him say, “that’s my friend…now back the f*&k up!”

It was Steve.

That was almost thirty years ago and I still remember Steve standing there like it was yesterday.

I was getting the tar beat out of me and into the fray stepped a young man who knew what was happening was wrong.

He knew he didn’t have to put himself in harms way but he did anyway.

Did I care, that at one time, Steve had said some horrible things to me.

NO.

Did I care that in the past Steve had chosen a different side than myself.

NO.

I was in trouble and Steve stepped in, defended me and bought me enough time to GET BACK UP AND INTO THE FIGHT.

Sound familiar?

It should.

The United States is at a cross roads.

The election of Hillary Clinton will remove all semblance of the Rule of Law.

Eventually millions of us are going to decide that we will not be dictated to.

That we will not be lied to.

That we all follow the laws or none of us follow the laws.

This will cause tremendous pain for you, for me, for America.

Something none of us want.

Without the electorate choosing a new direction the writing is on the wall.

The needs of the Human have been the same since the dawn of man.

Water, food, shelter, SECURITY, the need to belong.

You don’t have to like Steve, but he is the only one standing in front of us, taking hits that he doesn’t have to be taking.

He is speaking truth to power and getting crushed.

While we are trying to get back up from the beating, Steve is pushing the abusers back, giving us time to regroup.

Steve’s language was profane.  So was theirs.  So was mine.

Did the beating stop?

Yes it did.

We have four weeks to stop the assault.

You damn well better appreciate Steve as he is the only one holding back four more years of a beating.

A beating that many will not survive.  Whether you believe that or not is irrelevant.  Facts are facts.

A new way must be paved.  A new card must be played.  We all know what it is.  It has five letters…just like Steve.

That card is known as TRUMP.

For those of you who have been with me for a while you know how I feel about profanity. There are so many beautiful words available to use I believe profane verbiage is the measurement of the intellectually lazy.

There are times however that profanity is appropriate and even warranted.

It is always warranted in the physical protection of ourselves or others.

Usage of any word is always better than fists.  Fists are always better than bullets.

Due to the fact that corruption is ruining our country I want to make sure this message is clear.

Stand the f*&k UP!

If you won’t now, “Steve” might not be there next time.

To all my Brothers and Sisters.  To all American Sons and Daughters.

It’s time to do what we gotta do.

Hillary Clinton is a CRIMINAL

I believe the course was called Introduction to Critical Thinking.  The professor could have been a clone of the country singer Sammy Kershaw and I wisely fought back the urge to ask him if he had a “Queen in his double-wide trailer.”

This professor didn’t mess around (and rarely smiled) as he started in on what was expected of us, while outlines of the class, were passed around the room.  Five minutes later we were into something called the “Gambler’s Fallacy”.

The easiest way to explain this (and most common) is a coin flip.

If a coin is flipped multiple times and comes up heads on every occasion “gamblers” tend to believe that the odds of tails happening on the next flip are greater.  They aren’t.  When a coin is flipped it has the same odds every time regardless of previous outcomes.

Hence those that believe the odds change with each flip are gambling on a “fallacy”.

Of course try to tell that to those who like(d) to gamble and they will argue with you until the cows come home.

I know this to be true, because before this teacher, I was one of those people, and let’s just say I wasn’t flipping coins.

I’m sure I’ll cover that eventually in my sequel to Late Bird titled Falcon Sane crash lands in Vegas, Tahoe, Reno, and a river boat in Kentucky.

It’s humor liberals.

The professor continued to explain the Gambler’s Fallacy, and due to my youth and ego, felt like a direct challenge to me.  The more I listened the more I was convinced I should be teaching this class, and even though the University was paying for it (baseball), I still felt like I wanted my  money back.

After five more minutes I couldn’t take it anymore.  When he supplied a scenario and opportunity to comment I leaped into the conversation and challenged virtually everything he had just said.

I did it with passion and fire in my belly, or as one of my more memorable coaches used to say,”show me some piss and vinegar!”

Professor Kershaw honed in on me like a hungry lion that had just spotted a wounded gazelle.  The never smiling man spent thirty seconds dissecting my statement and then, thankfully for me, moved on to a new subject.

I sat there like a fighter, who had just awakened on his stool after taking two jabs to the body and a crushing haymaker to the chin asking, “what happened?”

Okay, it wasn’t thirty seconds.

It was probably fifteen and I’m pretty sure they were all haymakers.

It wasn’t the arguing or debating that took me down.  I’ve always enjoyed that.  It wasn’t the stares coming from the rest of the class either.  I’ve been in front of people my entire life.

It was that moment, that millisecond, when you realize…you are wrong.

That blink of an eye that allows us to learn, as long as we get out of our own way.

I sat there quietly thinking about what had just happened.  That’s when the embarrassment set in.

Fortunately I’ve always been a quick healer, physically and mentally, and after a few minutes I really tuned into what the professor was saying.

In front of me was someone I could learn from.

Someone who would, and did, make me question and provide support for my own beliefs.

That “moment” when the light turns on is sorely needed in our country and it isn’t just needed by the kids.

What do we do?

We stop flipping the coin “hoping” for a better outcome.

Americans don’t “hope”.  Hoping for something removes the power of the Individual.

We work hard, save our money and are beneficial to others.

That’s why our lives matter.

Continuing to “care” for people who do not care for or about themselves is not only hopeless but destructive as well.

Continuing to allow millions of people to live here illegally while providing them water, food, shelter, employment, medical care and schooling and sending billions of dollars around the world in “foreign aid” while we continue to borrow trillions of dollars is economically destructive and let us be honest…stupid.

All things economically destructive lessen Freedom and enable those who mean to do us harm.

It’s as simple as that.

Of course in regards to our political process we need a dramatically different choice and frankly a different coin.  The one we’ve been flipping for the last three decades has liberal stamped on both sides.

Inserting a Clinton, Bush or Obama is irrelevant.

Debt, drugs, sexual dysfunction, never ending wars, social unrest, lies, corruption, etc.

Sound familiar?

It was called the Sixties and the Me Generation liked it so much they’ve never stopped.

Heroin is back.  STD’s are rampant among the 50 plus crowd.  Lies are commonplace.  Governmental corruption is the norm.  The abuse once piled on our heroic Vietnam Vets is now aimed at Law Enforcement.

Tonight millions will watch a debate between two individuals.

One took down the Republican Establishment.  The other is corrupt to the core.

One who has earned billions of dollars and created thousands of jobs.

The other has somehow gathered hundreds of millions of dollars while people around her plead the fifth or take immunity deals.

One whose obnoxious statements hurt peoples feelings.

The other makes decisions that get people killed.

One has stated he will remove Common Core,  repeal Obamacare, attack human trafficking by closing the border and stop the number of “refugees” known as followers of Mohammed into these United States.

The other says she will give America four more years of Obama.

I’m not voting for Trump because I need a role model.

I’m not voting for Donald Trump because I need someone to lead me.

I’m voting for Trump because I’m done flipping the coin.

Both Parties are corrupt to their very core.

The Donald smoked the Republican Establishment.

Now it’s time to fry the Democrats and free a Nation.

Yes the Klan still exists

A question was posed to me a while ago when the media was running around making a big case about “racism, Trump, and the Klan.”

“Jason, do you think the Klan still exists?”

“Of course they do.  They even come out and make statements quite often,” I answered.

In 2010 a white man was “impressed”  that a certain black man was “light-skinned” and spoke with “no Negro dialect unless he wanted to have one.”

Also in 2010 a white woman called a  “former member” of the KKK a “friend and mentor.”

In an incredibly bizarre twist, also in 2010, a black man called a recruiter for the Klan “a fierce protector of the US Constitution.”

The name of the white man who was “impressed” with a black man’s “light skin” and able to speak without “Negro dialect unless he wanted to have one,” was none other than Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid.  DEMOCRAT.

The name of the white woman who called a member of the KKK a “friend and mentor” was none other than Presidential Candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton. DEMOCRAT.

Hillary would have been a wonderful Nazi as she also adored Margaret Sanger who, if she could have, would have sterilized every person she deemed “unfit” in America.

The name of the black man who called a recruiter for the Klan “a fierce protector of the US Constitution,” was none other than the President of the United States Barack Hussein Obama.  DEMOCRAT.

Yes the Klan does exist these days but they aren’t running around in hoods burning crosses.

They are running the Democratic Party.

Of course Progressive bigotry isn’t just a Klan thing.

In 2015 a “Latino” male threatened on television to put in place a “militancy that will be activated throughout the immigrant community.”

This threat was made in case legal deportations were made.  In other words the enforcement of the law.

Militant means “engaged in warfare or combat.”

His name is Luis Gutierrez.  Congressman from Illinois.  Democrat.

In 2012 a black woman stood on a stage, and knowingly being filmed, stated Sharia Law was compatible with the United States Constitution.  That same woman also made it a point to mention another woman (Hispanic) who agreed and was also in attendance that day.

The woman who made the statement was Congresswoman Maxine Waters from California.  Democrat.

The woman who agreed and was in attendance was Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez from California.  Democrat.

Due to a media that will not cover the truth most Americans have no idea what Sharia Law is or to what it pertains.

Sharia Law or Islamic Law is the “law of the land” in countries like Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

A blind man can see the United States Constitution is not “compatible” with these oppressive nations.

To put it bluntly women are property under Sharia Law and can be beaten, raped, and even killed…legally.

Homosexuality is a crime under Sharia and punishable by death.

There is a War on Women.

It’s happening in the misogynist and homophobic Middle East, with approval in 2014 from a white woman, who reportedly told many members of the press, that “Hamas is a humanitarian organization.”

Hamas is of course a Sunni Muslim terrorist organization that also accepts money from Shiite Iran and practices…Sharia.

This woman goes by the title former Speaker of the House.  Two clicks away in the Presidential ascension.

Her name is Nancy Pelosi.  Democrat.

Now some of you may not be familiar with Hamas.  As stated earlier they are an Islamic terrorist organization that hates Israel and The United States.

They also run the Palestinian Authority.  The same Palestinian Authority that continues to fire rockets into Israel with money from Iran.

The same Iran, Barack Obama, just gave over one BILLION dollars to.

Well not exactly dollars.  Obama helicoptered in different currencies to the Ayatollah where, according to John Kerry’s own words, “those funds could be used for terrorism.”

John Kerry Secretary of State.  Democrat.

Truly stunning.  The usage of propaganda, money, and lies to murder, rape, pillage, and create terror in other humans, specifically those that follow Judaism or as a black man would say “hymie town”.

The man who made that comment was “Reverend” Jesse Jackson.  Democrat.

Of course he isn’t alone.  In 2015 another black man called for the killing of humans with pale faces.

While college students screamed and threw tantrums about “micro aggressions” and Obama said he “understood” when cops were targeted and murdered, nothing was said about the aforementioned man who called for ten thousand black Americans to take to the streets to kill the white man.

That man is named Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, and he said these things in a church, not a mosque, where he reportedly received a standing ovation.

Calling for the militancy and the outright murder of others because they don’t look like you or because they are Semitic.

Kind of like…the KKK.

Well not kind of like.

Exactly like the Ku Klux Klan.

The Klan is still around and going strong.  It just comes in all colors now.

It’s found on the Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor and as an appointee to HUD (Julian Castro).  Democrats.

Both supporters of La Raza.  Just in case some don’t know what La Raza means.  It means “the Race”.

Pray tell what “race” are these bigots referring to?

I could go on and on with the bigotry coming from the Klan err Democratic Party but let us be honest with each other.

You don’t need me to.

We all know we have very real problems in America.

What’s that?

One more example of diversity in the new Klan?

Okay.

A black man stated recently that if blacks don’t vote for Hillary it would be “disrespectful” as it would ruin a legacy.

Basically if you are black and don’t vote for Hillary you are an Uncle Tom.

The name of the hateful bigot who said this.

Barack Hussein Obama. Democrat.

He is half right.

A vote for Hillary won’t ruin a legacy.

It will ruin a country.

Unless you’d prefer a noose

Last Sunday on Meet the Press, former Obama Advisor David Plouffe, called Donald Trump a psychopath.

The moderator Chuck Todd (a Clinton supporter/apologist) jumped in and inquired as to the “fairness” of this statement, never mind it was false and certainly unprovable by the likes of Plouffe.

Todd asked Plouffe if he had a degree in Psychology and of course Plouffe didn’t.

Two sickly looking humans gossiping about a 70 year old man whom appears to have more energy than the Press, and all of the Clinton campaign, combined.

At least Trump can finish a sentence without coughing up a lung.

Now I actually do have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology but that doesn’t make me a Psychologist.

That would be a Ph.D, Chuckles.

It doesn’t make me a Psychiatrist either.  That would be an MD, Theodore.

Yet this is what the media is now giving us.

Liberal Progressives calling anyone any name they like until something sticks (Harry Reid anyone?), and the media giving them plenty of airtime, to do so.

The press continues to smear and separate Americans on a daily basis.

We are constantly being told that an overwhelming percentage of Black Americans, almost all Hispanics or Latinos (for goodness sake members of the press, please settle on one label of bigotry) and “educated Whites” all support Clinton while only the “uneducated  White” knuckle draggers support Trump.

The “deplorables”.

It’s really an amazing thing what the Press is doing and too many seem to either agree, not notice or not care.

Whites are being stereotyped by “education”.

Smart Whites want Clinton.

Stupid Whites want Trump.

It is very clear what the Press is doing as they continue to tell us this EVERYDAY.

Amazingly no one, on either side of the spectrum, seems to grasp what else is being said.

While the “smart Whites” support Clinton and the “stupid Whites” support Trump, the press is stating that virtually ALL Black Americans and Hispanic/Latinos are supporting Clinton.

Unless we are to assume that all Black Americans and Hispanic/Latinos are “educated” the Democrats/Press are calling at least a portion of Black Americans and Hispanics “uneducated” or in another word…dumb.

While Whites are stereotyped by “education” Blacks and Latinos aren’t given such “courtesy”.

According to the media these two groups all think the same way regardless of an “education.”

Sounds like “racial profiling” to me.

Funny how bigotry always finds its way home.

Of course the press isn’t going to overtly speak the truth even though their actions and words are clear.

Could you possibly imagine the media coming out with “educated Blacks and Hispanics support Clinton…and so do the uneducated Blacks and Hispanics.”

Neither can I.

Now it has been acceptable to call Whites “stupid” for quite a while and as a strategy has worked incredibly well.

Rather than challenge the truth most of American society has been conditioned to accept Political Correctness which has morphed into:

“White Men Bad.  All Others are oppressed and in need of Government Assistance.”

White Guilt is in full bloom and has over taken the airwaves.  Case in point.

Ann Coulter is a writer and speaker.  Whether people like her style or not doesn’t matter to me.  As far as I can see she tells the truth and because of this is attacked mercilessly.

She has been called everything in the book including “horse face”.  This is of course not only tolerated, but approved, by the Progressive Liberals.

They are saying she looks like an animal.

Yet when comments are made that Michelle Obama looks like a monkey or an ape this is attacked as the worst form of racism known to man.

The Liberals make jokes about Horse Face, then lose control of their bowels when they hear Gorilla, unless the word Gorilla came out of the mouth of a Sunni Muslim known as Muhammed Ali.

The same Muhammed Ali who used this term towards Joe Frazier, an American Olympic Gold Medalist and Heavyweight World Champion.

Apparently it is appropriate to call black humans “gorillas” as long as it is done by a Sunni Muslim.

For the record listed below are a few more Sunni Muslims.

Osama bin Laden (Saudi Arabia Wahhabism)

Saddam Hussein (Iraq)

That’s quite a trifecta.

Two killers the Nazis would have been proud of and a draft dodging, wife cheating, braggart who took money from a man (Joe Frazier) and then betrayed him by calling him a gorilla and an Uncle Tom.

Just so we are all on the same page calling Ann Coulter “horse face” or Michelle Obama “gorilla” is asinine.

Calling people names in general is a waste of time and a poor usage of our corpus callosum.

Sorry Clinton supporters.  Corpus callosum is the connecting tissue…oh why bother…I’m sure I lost you at trifecta and no the word “asinine” has nothing to do with your backside nor followed by ten.

Concerned citizens are now wondering what to do next.  The politicians lie.  The media lies.

The FBI tells the truth and then says if you are Hillary Clinton (or millions of illegals) the rule of law doesn’t matter.

Obama is releasing “non violent criminals” who have returned to society and already murdered people, including a woman and her children.

Sanctuary cities allow criminals to hide AND continue harming local communities.

What do we do?

First we must admit the truth.

There are millions of Americans and millions in America who abhor these United States.

It is time to stop pretending that all Americans are equal.

Those who idolize Mohammed, Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Adolph Hitler, Robert Byrd, Margaret Sanger and groups like the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, CAIR, NAACP, Black Lies Matter and La Raza HATE everything America stands for.

They hate you and they hate me.

La Raza wants parts of the United States “back”.

Sharia wants it all.

Now there are many who will say these things aren’t true.  Sadly they are.

I wish they weren’t.

There is nothing wrong with America but there is definitely something wrong with plenty of Americans.

The time for compassion is long gone.

With statements like “pigs in a blanket, fry em like bacon”, “Islam is woven into the fabric of our country”, “Hamas is a humanitarian organization”, “Sharia Law is compatible with the United States Constitution” and calling for militancy from illegals against Americans, there is no room for compassion.

Just ask Reginald Denny.  He was almost beaten to death in the Los Angeles riots in 1992 for simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

“Room to destroy” has been around for decades.

Roughly the same amount of time that many in the Me Generation have been preying on the generosity of the United States.

The worst generation of politicians in American history.

Hillary Clinton is a disease that needs to be quarantined in Leavenworth, not stealing more furniture from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Like Trump or not…I don’t care.

He is the only tourniquet available right now.

Unless you’d prefer a noose.

I choose to stop the bleeding not our breathing.

If need be…one knuckle at a time.

Freedom is too important.

I have a friend who likes to gamble. We used to have that in common. Don’t get me wrong.  I still like to gamble once in a while.

I just don’t like to lose…so I’ve stopped.

Needless to say when we did find ourselves in Reno, Tahoe, or Vegas, we’d spend most of our time in the sports book, going over lines, trying to find who we thought would win AND offered the best odds.

One summer we decided to take the Seattle Mariners over the Boston Red Sox.

Future Hall of Famer Randy Johnson was pitching for the Mariners.

I cannot remember who started for the Red Sox.

Because Johnson was considered so dominant (and he was) his line was minus $300.

For those who’ve never wagered minus $300 means this.

One must bet $300 to win $100 if they decide to choose the Mariners.

Rather than three to one odds you are getting one to three odds.

We took Johnson and the Mariners, and let’s just say, we collectively bet more than $300.

For eight innings, Johnson did what a future Hall of Fame pitcher does.

Dominate.

In the ninth and final inning a pitching change occurred.

Instead of leaving Johnson out there with a 3-0 lead, the “manager” decided to bring in his “closer”.

Heathcliff Slocumb was handed the ball and before we had a chance to blink…the game was over.

4 to 3…Red Sox.

Our sizable and foreseeable profit was gone and a gaping hole was left in our pocketbook.

I wish this was the only gambling “story” I had to share.

Nevertheless it provides a caveat to the world of today’s politics.

History tells us Donald Trump should be the minus 300 favorite.

Hillary shouldn’t even have odds.

She should be in prison, and if Trump is elected…let us all dare to dream.

Eight years of a Democrat (Clinton), eight years of a Republican (Bush) and eight years of a liar…err…Democrat (Obama) shows the consistency of Boomer politics.

Twenty-four years of Progressivism (Oppression) has consistently handed the reins to the next Liberal in line, regardless of Party affiliation.

The media didn’t call Barack “George W. Obama” for nothing.

Now the Queen Bee of Anarchy wants to take her place at the head of the table with her promise to give us four more years of crushing debt, increased human trafficking, more Iranian stimulus programs and Islamic refugees.

Trust me when I say this, even some of the more imbecilic Liberals out there (I know a couple.  I don’t talk to them.  They disgust me but I get the info I need) do not like or trust Hillary and they don’t care that she is a woman.

Some think she is “gender detached”.

Of course these are the same people who think Bernie Sanders walks on water (maybe not the actual act as most of them believe they are the higher power) so we must be aware of these shoulder biters and paste eaters.

Yet even they do not support the crime syndicate known as the Clinton La Cosa Nostra.

As stated earlier, recent history tells us this should be a runaway, for the Republican candidate.

This year however, the Republican candidate, isn’t a Republican.

He isn’t a Democrat either.

Some say he isn’t black, brown, or white but rather…orange.

He isn’t liberal or libertarian, compassionate conservative or communist.

He is a Trump and when he sits down to play his card the game changes dramatically.

It is my personal view that Donald Trump should be leading in every poll on the planet and if/when he realizes Freedom is too important for all these reindeer games to continue, he will be the next President of the United States.

Even dictators around the world should be praying for Trump as four more years of instability in the United States, I believe, will take America and Americans to places most cannot imagine, few are ready for, and none of us want.

That which is bad for the United States, is horrendous, for the world.

American urban crime is increasing, international human trafficking is growing and our national and world wide debt is now beyond any rational fix.

Irrationality along with insanely leveraged credit is now the norm.

Thank you and a hat tip to the Woodstock Generation.

Sex, drugs, and Rock n Roll has given us broken families, methadone clinics, and needle sharing programs.

This doesn’t sound good to those of us who didn’t tune in, turn on or drop out.

Yet through yonder window light breaks and it appears America actually has a chance to vote for a Presidential candidate who didn’t get high.

A man who reportedly doesn’t drink alcohol.

A man who has created jobs, and paid millions in taxes that have funded the broken families, methadone clinics, and needle sharing programs.

“Oh who cares” yell the ignorant.  “His daddy gave him one million dollars!”

So?

Who wouldn’t accept money loaned from their parents?

Everyone would and many have.

Who amongst us turned that money into a fortune?

Very, very few.

So the rationale is this.

Someone (Trump) who created  billions of dollars, from a loan of one million from his father, is “irrational” and a “danger to our economy” but someone (Clinton) who lives off of the rest of us, and takes money from hostile foreign entities, while engaging in quid pro quo, isn’t?

The ankle biters have struck again.

Someone (Trump) who wants to close the border which would dramatically decrease human trafficking (for all you open border liberals, human trafficking equals the rape and murder of women and children everyday) is a “racist xenophobic bigot” while the person (Clinton) who wants the border wide open (again allowing the proliferation of human trafficking or in other words SLAVERY and sexual abuse) is “looking out for the rights of women.”

With a “friend” like Hillary Clinton looking out for you…who could afford enemies?

Yet Donald Trump is reportedly languishing in the polls and although many don’t believe the polls…I do.

As I’ve said many times there is nothing wrong with America but there is definitely plenty wrong with some Americans.

Three generations of drug usage, sexual promiscuity and living for the now, or YOLO, has taken its toll.

Too many have tuned out for so long they no longer care about anything.

Let us be honest.

We have a lot of dead weight that the rest of us are carrying and they will continue to slow us down until adults are back in charge or catastrophe strikes.

This election, will either cost lives, or save them, which is why it is so important for Trump to:

GET IT TOGETHER!

A while ago I wrote a column about Donald Trump, Rosie O’Donnell, and Scorched Earth.

The premise was simple.  She attacked him.  He verbally scorched everything, including himself, and when it was all over Trump appeared from the fire like Danerius from the Game of Thrones…avec vetements.

To:  My American Brother Donald J. Trump.

From:  Your American Brother Jason Kraus

Stop with the Ready, Fire, Aim.

We need you to Ready, Steady, Aim at Hillary Clinton, and FIRE.

Stop talking about the Khans, Paul Ryan, and rigged elections.

Stop talking about Vladimir Putin, how much money you’ve made, and shut up about you always wanting a Purple Heart.

Nobody WANTS a Purple Heart.

In my opinion many don’t realize this about you and maybe you don’t realize this about yourself.

Although you enjoy compliments, and to a certain extent crave acceptance, you become very uncomfortable when someone says something or does something nice in your presence.

You, like many men in your generation, dismiss compliments even though deep down you really appreciate them.

Your joke about wanting a Purple Heart, in my opinion, was just that.

You were truly touched and rather than showing emotion you told a joke and were perceived to be unappreciative of the gift.

Let me be clear.

I’ve supported you the entire time because I thought you weren’t a politician.

Through some of the gaffs, absurdities, and just poor decisions my vote never wavered.

When I read about the Purple Heart comment my blood boiled.

After seeing the video and watching your non-verbal cues I understood you were embarrassed that such an honor would be bestowed upon you.

This of course is subjective.

It is my opinion.

Regardless it is time for you to stop taking the bait, and prove that those of us who support you, are correct.

It is more important for us, that you win, than it is, for you.

We don’t have billions in the bank and a tower to return to.

We have to live with these political outcomes, that are slowly strangling us, everyday.

You are not alone.

You are not Atlas.

We’ve got your back.

Now STAND UP and give us something to cover.

Freedom is too important.

Ready, Steady, AIM AT HILLARY CLINTON….

FIRE !!!

The Rule of Law no longer exists in America

Almost two decades ago (seemingly a lifetime) I had the unfortunate experience of working for an individual whom I did not like.

This person had all the prerequisites.

Communicated poorly, lied, cheated on their spouse, institutional fraud, etc.

Without walking down the entire path again it is fair to say it wasn’t a positive experience.

I rarely think about this walking cold sore as my time now is spent moving forward with my life but if one day horrible things were to happen to this individual I will nod and acknowledge the arrival of karma.

With that said I would vote for this foul piece of feces everyday, and twice on Sunday, over Hillary Clinton.

Too many times over the years we’ve heard “this is the most important election in our lifetime”.

The Liberals have ranted (if Trump is elected) that the country will be taken over by “Nazis” or “White Supremacists”.

Children will collapse without “a free education”.

Citizens will choke from dirty air and water and old people will die from a lack of medical care.

Aside from this all being false I’m quite sure millions of humans didn’t die at the hands of the Nazis because they didn’t receive a “free education”.

Medical care, dirty water and air don’t make much of a difference either when you are being MURDERED with guns, knives, rifle butts, and bare hands.

Nothing quite like a Progressive…then again they should know.

Black Lies Matter, CAIR, and La Raza are all Naziesque.

Many Conservatives on the other hand continue to wistfully call for the return of Ronald Reagan.

This is the same man who gave the Liberals both of what they are screaming for now and frankly a big part of the reason we are in this mess now.

Amnesty and free medical care (IRCA and EMTALA, 1986).

Disregarding a Herbert Walker, Bill Clinton followed with eight years of absurdity, Bush gave us eight more of pure lunacy, and then we graduated to full blown arrogance, stupidity, and asininity with Barack Insane Obama.

A little known fact is this.

Every single one of these individuals GREW the Federal Government…whether we want to admit it or not.

Rather than really understanding how humans actually work, Plato, Adam Smith, Abraham Maslow, etc., the individual American has given way to “group think”.

Free Will has been replaced with “Gender Rights”, “Racial Rights”, Republicans, Democrats, Progressive Liberals, and Compassionate Conservatives.

After listening to thirty seconds of FOX, MSNBC, CNN, or lately ESPN, most believe they can speak from a knowledgeable point of view.

I’m not sure which is more dangerous.

The narcissism or the inanity of it all.

Through all the madness, the Central Banks continue to extract wealth from individuals, every second of the day.

One need only watch the “debt clock” to see this madness in action as every dollar in debt, is another taken, from the Individual.

But hey “what difference does it make?”

This time it will make a very big “difference”.

The Rule of Law no longer exists in America.

The only reason anarchy hasn’t broken out is most of us are good people who aren’t looking to hurt others.

Still, the longer any behavior continues, the more “conditioned” most will become.

Like Pavlovian dogs when the bell rings, too many start to salivate, not realizing the bell isn’t our friend.

Trump is not a savior.

He isn’t God.

He is a man who hopefully will get an opportunity to put the Rule of Law back in place.

Yes I will absolutely vote for Donald Trump, but the most important part of Trump being elected, isn’t what he will do, rather it shows, America has finally awakened.

This is what makes this election so important.

Are our eyes finally open?

I don’t know.

As I am writing this now, and possibly as you are reading, another member of law enforcement was murdered.

This time in Kansas City.

Sadly this probably won’t be the last before I publish this column.

There is quite a bit of instability and fear in the country, and world right now, as the culture of freedom gives ground to the culture of oppression.

Living free without fear is a choice.

A conscious decision.

Nothing is free in this world.

Nothing.

Everything comes with a cost.

Whether you believe that or not…is irrelevant.

Too many have paid with their lives in America, for us to simply go quietly, into the night.

Remember what we are.

Human Beings gifted with Free Will who do not cower, will not waver, and never quit.

In other words…An AMERICAN.
